I was totally let down by Guardians of the Galaxy
. But we don't have to have that
conversation right now, because what I wasn't let down by was Awesome Mix Vol. 1
Star Lord's Mom's Awesome
playlist has sold over 400,000 copies digitally, on CD, and even on vinyl since it's release as the Guardians of the Galaxy
soundtrack this summer. Now, the 1970s throwback — which spans a broad '70s spectrum including, the Jackson 5, to David Bowie, to the Runaways — will be released in it's authentic format: an awesome limited-edition cassette tape. It's set to be dropped on Record Store Day
's Black Friday event on November 17th, and includes a digital copy of the compilation — just in case you have a car that was made after 1999, or a collector's habit.
Go ahead, get your Groot on. Listen to Star Lord's greatest gift to the galaxy in all it's glory, below:
